  • Organic addition to IPM programs with low risk of infection to bees and other pollinators
  • Increase productivity of plants by containing insect pests
  • Increase plant resilience by reducing entry points for pathogenic diseases

Does NOT create resistance, resurgence and residue problems.

Does NOT affect the natural enemies, so offers long-lasting pest control

EntoFix is a biological inoculant (mycoinsecticide) based on a strain of naturally occurring entomopathogenic fungus Lecanicillium lecanii.  The product contains spores and mycelial fragments of Lecanicillium lecanii

Lecanicillium lecanii is known as the white-halo fungus because of the white mycelial growth on the edges of infected scale insects.  It was first reported in 1939 as is known as “the farmers friend”. 

Entofix contains naturally occurring entomopathogenic fungus:

  • Lecanicillium lecanii.  

  • EntofixTM is an organic addition to IPM programs 
  • EntofixTM can be used for the management of economically important soft scale insects 
  • Is highly specific to its hosts and as a result will help to increase the productivity by containing the insect pests 
  • Reduction in entry points for pathogenic diseases to enter plant structure 
  • Does NOT create resistance, resurgence and residue problems 
  • Does NOT affect the natural enemies and so, offers a long-lasting pest control 
  • Low risk to infection of bees and other pollinators
